Friday Favorites: Two Weeks Away (+Giveaway)

Happy Friday, friends! I really need to figure out how to slow down the time—I am definitely not ready to move in just two weeks! Here are my Friday favorites this week:

/ / One:
We bought a couch! I wasn’t planning on buying any new furniture since we are only going to be in Chicago for a year, but a Nebraska Furniture Mart opened up in our area, and we couldn’t pass up a great deal. I can’t wait to style our new living room.

/ / Two:
On Monday, Chris and I are headed to a lunch in his honor. He won the best tutor award, and I am so excited to celebrate his accomplishments!

/ / Three:
Skyler wanted me to thank our friends at Chewy for her Grain-Free Greenies treats and Kong Cozie Marvin the Moose Toy. She loves the Greenies, and I am a huge fan because they clean her teeth. As for Marvin the Moose, he has become her favorite toy. She loves playing with him and even brings him up to her favorite chair to sleep with her.

Disclosure: sent me the Grain-Free Greenies Treats and Kong Cozie Marvin the Moose Toy to review. No further compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.

/ / Four:
Next week is a happy mail week! Most of my subscription boxes are coming, and I am getting some fun new samples from Crowdtap

/ / Five:
Speaking of subscription boxes, I have started putting away most of my makeup, so it is hard for me to pack away the items I receive right now. Instead of trying to cram them in places they don’t belong, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway!

Giveaway items: Probelle Nail Polish in Into the Blue, L’Occitane Roses des 4 Reines hand soap, Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel Sample, Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir (3 oz.), Malin+Goetz Mojito Lip Balm, Scandalous by Nannacoco Mascara, and Dancin’ Goat Hula Bliss Hand and Body Lotion (2 oz.).

If people are interested, I might do a few more beauty giveaways when more subscription box items arrive.

  4. I can't believe you move so soon! Your new adventure will be so fun. Skyler's so cute with all the new goodies. Copper has some coming :)

  5. Happy Friday! Our couch is one of my favorite pieces of furniture we splurged on too, even though we knew were only here temporarily. I hate to think we're going to turn around and sell it!

  6. I heard people talking about the new furniture store! I had never heard about it until it opened up. How is the quality compared to prices? I really want a new couch, but ours is only two years old. It's so uncomfortable though!

  7. Congratulations to Chris! And yay for the couch!

  8. Aww yay! Congrats to Chris, that's awesome! And congrats on your new couch! I totally need a new one haha! That pic of Skyler is so cute! Happy Friday girl!

  10. Happy weekend! I would love to subscribe to one of those boxes but the trend hasn't really got around to my area of Europe yet. Sigh. Maybe if/when we move back :)

  11. Congrats to Chris! And yay for a new couch - why is it that when you're not really looking, you find the perfect one & when you absolutely have to buy one, you can't ever find the perfect one?
